Canada’s first urban heat loss map of over 500,000 homes
The MyHEAT platform gives the ability to visualize and compare the heat escaping from every building in a town or city, and is available free of charge. As of today the platform is live in Calgary, Okotoks, Airdrie, Edmonton, and Sherwood Park, with over 500,000 houses profiled. Additional Alberta communities will be added over the coming months, with a planned roll out across major urban Canadian cities over the next year.
In collaboration with ATCOenergy and Mike Holmes Inspections, today’s launch marks the continued commercialization of award-winning technology developed by Dr. Geoff Hay and his team at the University of Calgary. MyHEAT’s technology uses detailed nighttime thermal infrared airborne images to map building heat loss, and is based on proprietary algorithms that eliminate micro-climatic variability and geospatial effects. This increases the accuracy of building, community and city heat loss maps and makes it possible to compare the results over time and across different geographical locations.
“This new technology is a prime example of Alberta leadership and innovation that will help reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gases, improve efficiency, and increase education and monitoring,” said Jeff Taylor, MyHEAT’s President and CEO, “We look forward to working with additional partners to build momentum towards a more sustainable future.”
About MyHEAT MyHEAT makes urban energy efficiency a reality for individuals, businesses and organizations. Our award-winning technology uses large-scale data processing that visually identifies where energy is escaping from buildings. The MyHEAT platform provides users with the information they need to understand their energy loss, increase efficiency, reduce consumption and save money. Our goal is to empower a worldwide reduction in urban greenhouse gas emissions, one building at a time. We have a passion for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and a commitment to innovation.
